I don't think the point is whether it was a great Dane or a Ridgeback- both are large dogs, and both need controlled- the next person attacked could be a small child- and real physical harm could result.
I am wimpish around dogs when running, and if the owners let them run at me I stop, stand still, and shout at the owner to get their dog off.I have never been bitten, although I am regularly a bit scared during a run- I tend to have to sprint for a while after to burn off the adrenaline!
Taking a picture if you see her again is a good idea, but best idea is to avoid another confrontation. Good luck.
Feel a bit of a wuss after seeing FFB'd fantastic photos, but apart from a 90 minute run in the gym on thursday, and half an hour yesterday, I've been very lazy since the middle of the week- just can't be doing with running in these blustery/ wet conditions- think I'm a bit knackered- work stuff is mostly mentally tiring, and interfering with sleep.
Didn't crawl out of bed 'til noon today- so perhaps I'm better to listen to my body, get some recovery done, then start again- .................not sure why I feel so totally wiped out- I think I'm the only person at work not to have had a ghastly lurgy- perhaps I've had a low -level infection that's not enough to make me overtly ill, but enough to wipe out the running Mojo. Either that, or I'm a wuss, as said earlier.
